  • Threepeat: Oldham County...

    Oldham County may have stumbled to a 1-2 record in district play but that didn’t matter much Friday night as the boys in blue made their first big wave of the postseason, edging rival South Oldham 59-52 for the school’s third straight 29th District championship.
    “That’s probably one of the best high school games that I’ve been a part of,” Oldham County coach Jason Holland said. “A lot of runs by both teams and a lot of good defense by both teams, a lot of big plays from both teams and a lot of great coaching.”

    Heading into the fourth quarter of Friday night’s 29th District final, South Oldham was on its last legs.

  • DOWN GOES COLLINS!: South Oldham...

    If South Oldham was supposed to feel intimidated by a first-round matchup with Collins High School, someone forgot to pass that along to the Dragons Tuesday night as they ended the Titans’ season in dramatic fashion, rallying for a thrilling 85-82 overtime win.
    “All we heard was how horrible a draw this was for us, that’d we have to play the best team in the region first,” senior Matt Haysley said. “But you know what, it was a bad draw for them.”
    Early on, it certainly looked like it as South Oldham came out of gates in a flurry.

    After leading her team to a season unlike any other, South Oldham swim coach Christine O’Rourke was honored Feb. 8 as the Region 2 Coach of the Year.

  • Oldham County girls knock off...

    It wasn't pretty win but Oldham County coach Jace Bryant will certainly take it as his Lady Colonels advanced out of the first round of the 29th district tournament Tuesday night with a 59-53 victory over Trimble County.

    Center Jenna Kirk was a big reason for that , providing a big boost for the Lady Colonels after Trimble County game-planned to limit Ashley McMurtrey with a box and 1, scoring 11 of the first 16 points.

  • SOHS football player signs with...

    After a career at South Oldham that saw many program firsts, Jack Sherry will take his talents to Morehead State after signing with the Eagles Feb. 6.
    Sherry said a number of factors weighed on his decision, including where the campus was located and the makeup of the coaching staff.
    “They have a brand new, motivated coaching staff, a top 5 nationally ranked offense, and wide open QB situation,” he said. “I’ll have a chance to start as a freshman. What more can you ask for?”
    Not long after weighing his offer, he posted his decision to play at Morehead online via Twitter in late January.
